CHICAGO (AP) - If Illinois becomes the 19th state to legalize medical marijuana, experts say there may be scores of legal questions for businesses.

Crain's Chicago Business reports the bill that was approved by lawmakers in Springfield is prompting questions from observers.

The measure, which is awaiting Gov. Pat Quinn's signature, is being billed as the strictest in the nation. It's not clear if Quinn will sign it.

The measure's sponsor says there'd be minimal impact on employers with a zero-tolerance drug policy.

But critics say there could be legal issues related to hiring and firing workers who test positive for the drug or show up to work while they're impaired.

 

UPDATE: Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul on with McGraw

Monday, 10 June 2013 12:03 Published in Local News

A St. Louis County Circuit Judge has reinstated Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul.

On April 8, Paul was removed from office by the City Council on charges of abuse of power. Yesterday's decision states that the City Council may have violated Paul's due process by changing the charges against Paul without giving him proper notice.

Paul's attorney Chet Pleban tells KTRS's McGraw Milhaven that Adam Paul once again has "full duties and full responsibilities" as the new mayor. Mayor Paul added, "It's going to be nice coming back to a level-headed counsel that's fair and unbiased." 

The judge determined that the council may have also committed other improprieties that include: the previously appointed City Attorney disqualifying himself from the removal hearing, but among other things, writing the charges against Paul.

The judge concludes his ruling by saying that Paul's motion to stay the removal is granted and he is reinstated as Mayor. 

JERUSALEM (AP) — A senior Israeli official says the government will not agree to the borders that the Palestinians are demanding for an independent state.

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon said Israel would not let such a state be established within the regional boundaries that existed prior to the 1967 Mideast war. Palestinians want east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza — territories captured by Israel in that war. Danon's remarks were broadcast on Israel Radio Sunday.

His remarks came ahead of another visit by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to the region this week.

The government has distanced itself from similar comments made by Danon last week.

Israel's chief negotiator Tzipi Livni told the station Sunday she was hopeful talks will resume with the Palestinians despite "elements" within the Israeli government.
